Former Tahidi High actress Veronicah Mwaura laid to rest her dad today at Kipipiri county.

Veronicah who played the role of Miss Obija on the high school drama lost her dad to COVID-19 complications.

Paying tribute to her late dad, Veronicah penned an emotional letter.


though your departure is painful

i wont question why it had to come

neither will I sorrow over it

instead, dad, allow me to celebrate you

I hurt inside to see you go

knowing the Love you had for me

recalling the many Promises I made

to try and repay your Goodness to me

Though my steps int life falter

i will always walk in your footsteps

and give the most I can to all

as you loved to do always

Your care knew no age

Your friendliness hugged everyone

You gave a word where required

You gave a hand where necessary

I will always live in the shadows

Of your abundant generosity

You gave by one's need

Not by status of recepient

Dad, your sudden departure

Hands me a heavy baton

To see your dream of the world

Achieved hopefully fully


It's not easy walking

In shoes meant for you

But I will do my best

With your wisdom

And God's grace

I will manage

Rest well
